As you all know, Periyava had talked extensively about this mahan. I have already posted Periyva’s speech on Him in our “Audio Content” section. Periyava had highlighted the supreme Shiva bakthi this mahan had that resulted in several outstanding works – more importantly He talked about “Unmatha Panchakam”. Please read this article to learn more about this mahan. I know that this is a little longer article – please don’t give-up. It is such a treasure to read. We all know that Sri Rudram is a powerful vedic chant. This story will magnify the importance of it and also the shiva nama mahima. Simply astonishing incidents….If you think that this mahan is a shiva baktha only, you’re wrong – in this divya charithram, you will read about his devotion to Lord Vishnu and how Vishnu blessed him and also ended up writing stuthis on Lord Ranganathar…..
I have taken notes on several slokas and other work done by Dikshitar – need to find them…
- சிவார்க்கமணி தீபிகா
- சிவார்ச்சன சந்த்ரிகா
Of all these, I am more interested in the last one as in that He has elaborated how to do nithya Siva puja to help that king….
